Today's post is postponed to take time to shed a few tears. And, perhaps to pray for guidance on ways and means of stopping these senseless acts of violence.
I cry for the families who are in agony right now and who's lives will never be the same. I cry for the adults who lost their lives. I cry for the babies. I cry for the people of Connecticut and the USA. I cry for all of us who have lost our innocence and sense of security in the world.
We can and MUST find a better way.
Peace on earth, good will to man!

So sad. So unnecessary.ReplyDelete
I could barely breath when I heard the news. It leaves you in shock. All those children...ReplyDelete
you said it very well. Thanks for speaking out about this.ReplyDelete
Amen Maureen - Amen......................ReplyDelete
Amen~There are no words- xo DianaReplyDelete
Heartbreaking, heart wrenching. I just keep thinking "Why?" And of course that question can never really be answered.ReplyDelete
Thank you Maureen - your words say it all.ReplyDelete
I'm also praying for all the first responders, the coroners, the CSI investigators, the funeral home directors and anyone else who is touched by this tragedy and is "just doing their jobs". My husband and son are police officers and know firsthand the effect this type of tragedy can have on those who must attend on these horrific scenes.
There are no words I can use to describe the sorrow in my heart and the deep compassion I am feeling for those who are left behind this evil trail of destruction. I join you, and the millions of others who are praying for them.ReplyDelete
I don't think we will find a way to understand this but I do hope we find a way to stop this....it just leaves me empty.ReplyDelete
Amen, my sister.ReplyDelete
Yesterday I could not go on the computer. I could not look at the comments and posts. Maybe because of my nature grief was second to blazing anger that was consuming my thoughts. Angry that these parents are living the worst nightmare any of us can have, anger that these children and teachers had their lives taken an anger that we live in a world where this happens. When the anger passed I cried for all the victims and their loved ones. dreadful doesn't really sum it up but it is dreadfulReplyDelete
I turned off the tv, turned the station on the radio when anyone talked about the shooting. I just couldn't take the heartache, all those poor innocent people, my heart aches for them all those innocent children.ReplyDelete
Well said Maureen.
We never heard of such things 30, 40 years ago. It is a relatively new phenomenon and no doubt caused by the way our society has become. How do we go back? How do we prevent this from happening again? There are no answers.ReplyDelete
This is unbelievably tragic and my heart goes out to the families who have lost loved ones.ReplyDelete
I so hope that we will find a better way...ReplyDelete
We cry and hurt and ache for those who lost their lives so violently in this horrific and senseless crime. As mothers, we have our moments, when fear invades our peace and convinces us that these acts of evil will, unfortunately, be repeated, as history of late has shown, and a solemn presence is sustained at this otherwise merry time.
Wishing you peaceful holiday season.
